Good decision. I'm a fan of both of them, too.

"Every Highway," ("Carefree Highway"); almost a theme song for Gordon Lightfoot; "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald," lingering on, words on words, this lyric doesn't stop unitl the song ends; "Sundown," "If You Could Read My Mind." Engaging, musical, very professionally performed and produced hit records worth their due in recognition. Good award.

I agree that Bob and Gordon are both very deserving. I am delighted for them both!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!

I bought this CD with money I got for Christmas, since Santa didn't bring it. Glad I went to Walmart for it. I didn't realize that it was exclusive to them & obviously I wouldn't have found it if I looked anywhere else. Great album!

My father hated "Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald." As a joke, I bought the single at the time it came out & gave it to him. He wasn't impressed. I always liked the song. I still have that single.

Wow. I absolutely worship that song. The subject matter may be gloomy but it's brilliantly told. Other favourite GL songs of mine are If You Could Read My Mind, Alberta Bound, Triangle, Cherokee Bend, Don Quixote, Canadian Railroad Trilogy & the magnificent Sundown which actually was a Number One single. I've told you about how I found a song of his called On Yonge Street, literally on Yonge St in Toronto & bought it on iTunes when I got home. He is a Canadian bard; he writes about the country much more than Neil Young, for example.

I downloaded a lot of MP3s from it from Amazon, so I'm not sure how 'exclusive' it is, but it's what the Bob Seger Facebook page put in my Newsfeed. I imagine the $11.88 is 'exclusive' to Walmart.

FP, I love all his work, but in particular Sundown & Cdn Raiload Trilogy. Pussywillows, Cat-Tails was the first song of his that I remember hearing (I won't say how many years ago). I have loved it ever since.

I'm happy for Gordon L too. I loved Sundown and If You Could Read My Mind especially.
